Jobless

Posted on
April 16, 2010

At this late stage of the winter, I experience many emotions. My lessons have finished for another year, which means I'm now jobless again !?! Suddenly from being on a high when teaching, to having no work is a shock to the system. As soon as the body realises it doesn't have to crawl out of bed first thing in the morning and rush down to work, it decides to shut down on you.

I love my job with a passion. Many times before on this blog I've stated that it is the best job in the world for me. But holy cow, it's exhausting at times. That's why over the last few days I've imitated being a marmot in winter, ie in hibernation. However at the end of last week I finished skiing with the Joneses and extended family, it was brilliant fun. Here are further photos from last week.

Each day the pistes became more and more quiet. Lift queues completely disappeared. The mountain restaurants were empty and the days sunny and long.

Many of my colleagues left the resort last weekend to go back to their homes around France. Some locals asked if I was going to have a holiday before going back to the UK. I replied "Yep, I'm having my holiday here in Méribel". They looked delighted for me and nodded with respect.

Surely there's no better place than Méribel to be on holiday? There is still plenty of skiing to be had, especially ski touring up at high altitude. I'll be dusting off Canon again before heading up and down the mountains to see if we can find any wildlife and jaw dropping views.

Fine French wine and cheese will be bought and consumed (oh and fruit and veg of course if Harriet is reading this). In between all of this, I'll be planning weekends away with Harriet to various places that we both love around the UK. For example the Lake District, Yorkshire, Derbyshire, Cornwall and Snowdonia.

I hope you have all enjoyed following the blog again this winter, I've certainly enjoyed sharing my passion for skiing and the mountains. Do keep reading in the next couple of weeks though before I head back. Right, where's my glass of wine, I am holiday now after all.
